Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult Hails UK Government's Decision

In response to the UK Government's announcement on changes to government renewable energy subsidies, ORE Catapult CEO Andrew Jamieson said:

"We welcome the Government's announcement of additional financial support for the development of offshore wind energy generation, in recognition of both the challenges that it faces and the opportunity that it brings.

"It is now imperative for industry and academia to work collaboratively with government to bring innovation to the market, to develop consistent standards and improve reliability, and to drive down the long-term cost of offshore renewable energy.

"That is how the UK will realise the huge potential economic, social and environmental benefits that this industry can provide."
